New Orleans, a melting pot of French, American and African culture, is known for its decadent cuisine, vibrant live music and party atmosphere. New Orleans is also home to the famous and colourful Mardi Gras Festival.

Renata and I spent a few days during the Christmas holidays exploring this incredible city. We arrived in New Orleans early evening and checked into our hotel, the Hilton New Orleans Riverside. After settling into our rooms, Renata and I headed over to Drago’s seafood restaurant, located in front lobby of our hotel. We had our first taste of New Orleans cuisine, charbroiled oysters and fried gator bites. Delicious! Then it was time to check out the Christmas scenery! New Orleans during the Christmas season was breathtaking. There were dancing alligators and (a “Who Dat?” sign) a slogan for the New Orleans Saints football fans.

Tomorrow, Renata and I are going to check out Mardi Gras World, visit the Garden District and look for ghosts on a ghost walking tour.
